    1 1/8'' Steerer Carbon Fork

    Looking to change things up and try the rigid thing. Looking for a cheaper alternative to the Niner carbon fork. Need a 1 1/8'' steerer tube. I like the Whiskey No7, but only see it in a tapered steerer tube. I've also seen the Hongfu, but yet again only in a tapered steerer. Is there another alternative that I'm missing or not thinking about? If push comes to shove I'll get the Niner, but hesitant because I've never ridden a fully rigid.

    I have this fork, but with the alloy steering tube. It's very nice quality and have had zero issues.

    Here's the alloy version I have...
    CarbonCycles.CC :: Components :: Products :: Forks - MTB Carbon, 1.1/8 in Steerer :: eXotic Carbon Rigid MTB Fork - Disc Only :: CC-F0365

    The carbon steerer model is listed at 1.6lbs and the alloy at 1.7lbs. Not a huge difference. also the alloy is $194 compared to $271.

    I know a guy that rides the carboncycles fork on some pretty demanding trails. I don't think he gets a lot of air, but short of riding rock gardens constantly, those trails are about as abusive as it gets. he says it's held up fine for him. I asked him about it when I ran into him on the trails last week. It really is a good looking fork, and likely to be one of the next upgrades that hits my SS.
